Flood forces jeweller to close one day after opening


Due to unforeseen circumstances, The Rock Hound has had to close its new boutique doors just one day after opening.

The Fairtrade licensee jeweller has been forced to close its new store/ design studio temporarily after a flooding occurred from a burst pipe over the weekend (May 20-21), destroying the whole space.

After a stint at Mare Street Studios, The Rock Hound decided to expand and take on a shop space and set its roots at Netil House in Hackney. After a couple of months getting the space ready, the jeweller held its official opening party on Friday, May 19th.

In a statement The Rock Hound said: “Due to unforeseen circumstances, after just one day of being open, we have unfortunately had to close the doors to our new boutique.

“Over the next few weeks structural works will be taking place at our Netil House HQ. We will be operating our online shop as normal as we work tirelessly behind the scenes to rebuild our new home.”

The team went on to thank everyone for attending the opening party, and said the encouragement from the industry has motivated them to work hard to get the studio up and running again.

Keep in good spirits, The Rock Hound ended its statement with: “Hard hats and paintbrushes at the ready. We are determined to make our second launch party even more spectacular than the first! Who’s with us? #LaunchPartyRound2.”

At the moment The Rock Hound HQ has no completion date.
